Choosing a Car Seat

We here at Volvo Cars Tampa were happy to help you find a safe vehicle that you can use for all of your family's needs. Now that you have purchased your new vehicle we want to make sure that you know all about picking out a safe car seat. Let's take a look at some of your options:

An infant carrier is used for newborns and usually can be used until the child is about 25 pounds. Different seats have different limits. The seat should be installed rear facing.

A convertible seat is used rear facing at first and is for toddlers and older children. Once the child is over 40 pounds then they can switch to forward facing. These seats usually have a five-point harness buckle system.

Booster seats are used for children that are still in need of a car seat but don't fit into a convertible seat. These seats use the vehicle's buckle system.
